An electrician friend of mine is going to install 220 in my garage so I can run my plasma jet this summer, but also an oven. I found some taller stand-ups that a guy a converted into 3 foot tall oven. Tall enough for a rear ruck frame. So I am going that route also.

Is it anything like this? This is what I want to get soon.



DAMN! EVEN BETTER! this is the one I was going to go with....

I think I could save some money and space if I went with your suggestion there. Thank you VERY much dude. That is a bit of money to drop on these, and I really wasnt wanting to spend $7K. I love the variety of options, and selection. Thanks for the info man. :banger:


Wow! That must be a damn good plasma cutter for that price. I figure with the 2x4 deluxe kit, Thermal Dynamics plasma cutter, and new Sony Vaio laptop for the system, I'm looking at around $10,000, give or take a bit. A lot of cash, but once up and running, it has potential to pay for itself. Last I looked, they didn't have the 4x4 kit. I may go with that one.

Debating about grabbing the Harbor Freight powder gun myself. I've powdered for AMGeneral for awhile so that parts easy for to me. I've scored 2 old geill that rusted out but the burner setups are in good shape. If I can find a big enough metal cabinet that'll hold a frame, all I have to do is mount the burners in the bottom with a heat shield/diffuser over them and set it up for propane tank use. Maybe add a seal from an oven around the doors to get a tight seal and keep the heat it in better. I'll post my progress as it comes along. (Or burn pictures of it goes horribly awry :twisted:

^^I don't know if the propane fumes will affect the curing process. I'd like to see those results though.

If you have a TechShop near you, you can PC there. Techshop is like a maker shop where they teach you how to weld, PC, etc. There is a fee or you can join with a membership. They have all the gear. You can sign up for the PC class and a Lab class (each are like $100) where the lab will teach you how to prep and PC, and the Lab you can do anything you want with the machine, so you can PC your own frame.
